    Hi,

    There are some accounts in server that are using 2.5 GB of the disk space just for the "Default mail that is not possible to delete or purge within cpane interface.

    Why would it fill up if I set in WHM to :fail and not using catchall?

    Where the accounts created before you set that setting?

    While not ideal you can delete the email within those accounts via ssh.

    Hi,

    I can still see some latest mails from few days ago in that mail, and setting is active for a year or so.

    Do you plan to include "purge" feature for the next stable cPanel release?

    Even better: auto accounts purge every x days.

    cat /etc/valiases/domain.com

    What exactly do you have setup for the catch-all in question that is not working?
